Marketing Manager / Director

Reports to VP of Marketing

Position located in Tampa, FL. 

Role

As the Marketing Manager at ThumbStopper, you’ll play a key role in the company’s value positioning, target account marketing, brand awareness, and overall presence, both online and offline. In this player/coach role, you will lead a team of internal marketing resources as well as manage external vendors and agency partners to successfully position ThumbStopper’s value proposition to our ideal customer profile.

Why ThumbStopper – Why do we exist?

Namely, there is a disconnect between brands and retailers. Although today’s successful brands are meticulous in maximizing brand awareness online and offline, many businesses do not operate with a corporately owned, direct-to-consumer business model. As a result, the marketing efforts that brands place into raising awareness on their corporate-facing platforms – such as their websites and social media pages – do not translate to the independent retailers tasked with selling their products.

The search for information has also shifted towards social. Online platforms like Facebook and Instagram are becoming hotbeds for brand discovery and business transactions. Since local retailers are rightly focused on selling, their attention is diverted from consistently managing quality organic social content. This leaves little chance for a brand’s message to remain consistent at the local retailer level.

To effectively market their brand via their retail network, brands need to take back control of their content’s narrative and manage its distribution, at scale. With ThumbStopper’s Brand Manager, we’ve enabled those brands to curate, segment, and syndicate their social media content to their retailer’s social media pages, 100% hands-free.

Through our solution, deploying consistent content becomes a passive component for retailers instead of an active responsibility. Thus, retailers do not have to worry about having a social media specialist or middle-man handling brand content and can focus on their business priorities.
